Item Builds Explained
This is the perfect item on current meta after patch [6.9]. I have tried various builds after Xin nerfs and found this works well. You can always change your build according to your opponent. As an example, you can change the boots according the enemy damage types.
-- TO improve your early game advantage, you need to get the highest attack speed early game. This item is cheap and gives you enough AS boost. After the patch [6.9] the boot upgrades are removed and you do not get enough from other boots.
-- We are building warrior item after the removal of devourer item from LoL after patch [6.9]. The new item is such an useless item right now. This might be buffed in coming patches. Until than, we need to build damage early game. You can 10% CDR as well. Tracker's knife is very important for a jungler in the current meta. You can watch the movements of the enemy and avoid ganks.
-- 45% Attack Speed + 30% Critical Chance + 5% movement speed.
Xin Zhao lacks movement speed to deal constant damage. This item allows you to move through units and you can stick to the target very easily. Also the damage done to you is reduced by 12%. This is very useful to target the Mages and ADC.
-- 25 Damage + 15% AS + 10% CDR + 250 HP & Mana + 20% Crit + Movement Speed
-- 48% Attack Speed + 74 AP + 53 AD when stacked.
As you are meelee champion, you only need to attack 3 times to get the maximum stack on this item. The passive on this item is new and it grants you on-hit effects every 2nd hit. As this item is so costly and you can not afford to buy this early game. If you save gold to buy this item, you will lose early game. So only get this item as your 5th item. This item has good late game stats. If you need to deal with so many tanks, combine this with the blade of the ruined king.
-- 35 Attack Damage and cleave damage based on you HP.
Titanic hydra is the most under rated item in the rift. When you get your Guinsoo's rageblade, you can deal very high amount of damage with this item's passive. Do not forget that this is an on-hit effect, so you deal double the damage every other hit.
